Cold Steel U.S. 1860 Heavy Cavalry Saber Sword
This top quality replica is patterned after the Model 1840 cavalry saber. Dubbed the "Old Wrist Breaker" due to its heavy weight, this design was used during the Mexican War, throughout the Civil War, and well into the campaigns against the Plains Indians. Measuring 41 1/2" in length, this item offers a 36" blade which is constructed from 1055 carbon steel with a hard spring temper and is guaranteed to pass the British Proof Test. The brass guard has three bars to protect the hand and the grip is wire bound leather and capped with a sturdy pommel. This sword includes a double ringed steel scabbard. This is an excellent sword for the reenactor or historical collector. Cold Steel, 88HCS.
